Peel the pumpkin and cut into 2-3" cubes; set aside. Heat oil in a
large frying pan that has a lid. Fry the pumpkins on both sides for a
couple of minutes until lightly browned. Mix together ingredients for
Sweet Tomato Sauce in a bowl then add to pumpkin mixture in fry pan.
Cover and cook 20-25 minutes over low heat until the pumpkin is cooked
and most of the liquid has evaporated. (I don't know how it's going to
evaporate if the pan is covered....-B.) Mix together the ingredients
for the yogurt sauce. To serve: Spread half the yogurt sauce on a
plate and lay the pumpkin on top. Top with remaining yogurt and any
cooking juices left over. Sprinkle with dry mint. May be served with
chalow (basmati rice) and naan or pita bread. From Afghani Cooking,
the cookbook from Da Afghan Restaurant, Bloomington/Minneapolis, MN.
